Campaign of the Month: September 2013
Step: Rank + PER
The adept comprehends animals and creatures, talking with them by imitating their own forms of communication and making an Animal Talk Test against the target creature or animal’s Spell Defense. If successful, the adept can talk to and understand the target for a number of minutes equal to his Animal Talk Rank. This talent does not compel the animal or creature to communicate with the adept, it merely makes communication possible. While the gamemaster is advised to treat animals as if they were gamemaster characters, using the rules for Social Interactions (see the Gamemaster’s Guide, p. 93), he should keep in mind that animals aren’t as intelligent as Namegivers and perceive the world differently.
